Library to host Zoom story time, pajama party

March 09, 2021

Put on some comfy jammies, grab a snack, and snuggle up for a bedtime story read by author, Emily Kilgore. After the Zoom pajama party and story time, Kilgore will be available to answer questions. This event will start at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 9. Call 218-732-4966 or email parkrapids@krls.org to register to receive the link. Kilgore will read “The Whatifs,” her debut children’s book. “Cora is constantly worrying about everything. Because of this, the Whatifs love her. They sneak up to her and give her all kinds of doubts: big or small, silly or frightening, likely or impossible. As she prepares for an upcoming piano recital, the Whatifs cling on tighter and drag her down, making her anxious about messing up during the concert. Will she be able to change her worry- filled thoughts into hopeful ones?” Emily Kilgore has been surrounded by the magic of books all her life. As both a writer and elementary school teacher, she strives to create books that foster empathy, welcome imagination and spark a natural curiosity. She has written for various education publications. The Park Rapids Area Library is sponsoring this special event.
